That's me, Stephanie Wingard, the artist. I never dreamed I would someday call myself an artist. (audible giggle) I wish I could tell you that I've studied art at a fancy art school or that I've spent most of my life painting and pursuing a dream to be the next Van Gogh. But I can't. The fact is that I really do love art and always have, but I never, ever had a desire to pick up a paint brush, let alone draw a decent stick figure until early 2012 when I literally woke up one morning and said, 'Hey, I think I'd like to try painting!'. That declaration was just the beginning of my art journey.

I am a completely self-taught artist in every sense of the words, 'self' and 'taught'. I don't know where the desire came from to try it, but I'm darn glad I did. The last 12 years have been spent designing and running a successful jewelry business. That is where the creativity comes from, but how does one go from jewelry designer to artist? I don't know. I believe I was burnt out with the jewelry business and just shut everything down on a crazy whim and decided to become a starving artist. What was I thinking?

Don't get me wrong. This was the best thing I ever did. Deep down in my soul, my inner artist was trying to escape. The next thing I know, I am at Hobby Lobby with a shopping cart full of art supplies. I didn't know where to begin or what to start with. As time went on I began to play with paints, textures, stencils, watercolors, paper, and more. It was too late to turn back now, so I had to make it work. It wasn't too long before I found a couple of places to sell my work. When a few pieces began to sell I was greatly encouraged. I started a Facebook page and a Google+ page in an effort to get some feedback from people other than family. The objective opinions I got were very helpful and continued to encourage me more. This has pushed me to try even harder to refine my skills.

As my art journey continues, I will also grow as an artist. I love all kinds of media and I'm having so much fun trying out new techniques, new mediums, and new styles. I wish I could settle down to one kind of art and focus most of my attention to a particular style. I just don't see that happening right now. I love it all and want to put my hands into everything. The one thing I can say that best sums up my kind of art is that it's bold, colorful, and sometimes a bit whimsical. Mostly it's happy art. The kind of art that comes from a happy heart. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed creating it.
